Step 6

Mark the sides as a left and right. Mark the slots that correspond to the center body tabs. Bevel the marked slots with a file or knife and bevel the breast plate slots so that the plates fit at 15 degrees off perpendicular. To bevel the laminated slots I used my Dremel with a 1/8" drill bit as a router.

Cut the tabs on the outer center body parts to 1/8 inch long. Trial fit into the sides. The slots for these pieces are NOT beveled. These pieces will be glued into the sides at 90 degrees.

Trial fit all the major parts together before assembly.

Building tip: From scrap Depron, I cut two right triangles with one side 2" and the other 7.5". This will give you a 15 degree angle and a 75 degree angle.
